My Dear
I am Mr Kruma WATARA, the manager of bill and  exchange at the foreign remittance department Bank Of Africa.
In my  department we discovered an  abandoned sum of US$14.5M (fourteen million five  hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our  foreign customer who died along with his family in the 2003 in a plane crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have  been expecting his next of  kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation  to the deceased as  indicated in our banking guide lines and lawsbut  unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died  alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I now  decided to make this business  proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation  to the deceased for safety and subsequent
disbursement since nobody is  coming for it and we don't want this money to go  into the bank treasury as   unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that  if such money remained unclaimed after six years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request of foreigner  as next of kin in this  business is occasioned by the fact that the customer  was a foreigner and a Burkina cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I agree that 45% of this money will be for you as  respect to the provision of a foreign account , 5% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% be for me.
Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply
first to the  bank as relation or  next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account  number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be  transfer.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by  fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your  notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you  receive this mail, Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully.
Mr Kruma WATARA,
